Courtesy Arkansan Democrat Catholic Hi's Danny Sarna, quarterback for three years, and Bill Oberle, three year letterman who will finish the season in the fullback slot, have developed a pass combination that is the terror of Rocket opponents on the field and seems destined to be placed on the first-string non-conference All State eleven. Sarna, who is short and weighs only 145 pounds, is considered one of the best deceptive runners in the state. He has gone up against such teams as the Hot Springs Trojans for three seasons and has always managed to break through for several long runs. He is as accurate on passing as he is speedy on ground plays, and has completed as many as 12 aerials in one game. Oberle balances Sarna's speed with power. He can always be counted on to plunge over for several yards to pick up a first down or a touchdown. He went over from the three yard stripe to make the only Rocket touchdown in the Brinkley game last week. Occasionally the Rockets elect to fool the opposition and work their pass combination in reverse with Oberle flinging to Sarna. These boys are expected to be the main scoring power in the game tonight when the Rockets meet Benton at the Little Rock Lieut.

"Dec" Cheroff mentioned in the "Action Ball" article is a Col- umbi University M. A. and a Ph. D. candidate. He was also a former Director of Athletics for the New York City Department of Welfare. Lieut. Commander Mal Stevens, who was at one time head coach of football at Yale has recently spoken in favor of football as an aid to warfare. He said that most of the United States commanders are old football players. He point- ed out that war, like foothall, calls for quick thinking, rapid decisions and changes in tactics depending upon the situation which confronts one. Catholic High dropped a game in Brlnkley last week, but the enthusiastic Rocket supporters are not dismayed by this setback and arc all set for a victory over Ben- ton when the team takes the field on the local gridiron this weekend. Benton took the measure of the Subiaco Trojans a short time back. Camparatlve scores are inevitable but they mean nothing. Sacred Heart School Sponsors Crusade Rally Helena.On October 7, Feast of the Holy Rosary, the C.S.M.C., of the Sacred Heart Academy spon- sored a Rally( commemorating the twenty-fifth year of the organiza- tion of the Crusade. All four local units of the Crusade participated in the celebration. The Rev. Gregory H. Keller pastor at Helena, was the prin- cipal speaker, urging the Crusad- ers to greater zeal, and pointing out to them the eternal value of helping to bring souls nearer to ,heir Creator. The Rev. J. Hauishek spoke riefly on the necessity of fer- vent prayer, since missionary work is chiefly a result of prayer :hat God may give the light of faith to many souls now groping in the darkness of paganism. The Rev. Wm. Burke explained very splendidly the work of the seminarians in giving instructions by correspondence. Members of Sacred Heart Aca- demy on the program were Walter Clancy, Joseph Brocato, Anna R. Haslett, Gloria Young, and Den- nis Keeshan.

As told by an attendant from Subiaco, Arkansas. I arrived at Childerley Farm (Wheeling, Illinois) for the two weeks' course, August 7-18. A group of New York girls were waiting to ask all about farm life. They hope to start a rural community after the war. There wasn't much I could tell them about that. However, I invited one or more of them to come down and promised I'd teach them some practical farming• I actually be- lieve they wish to do so! You see, I live near Subiaco Abbey where we get books on the liturgy, the Mass, and also on the rural life movement to study. There were 70 of us, subdivided into groups of ten each. One group worked on the land an hour during the hottest part of the day. Another gave something they were very fond of to prac- tice the virtue of detachment, such as giving up a wrist watch, St. Andrew's Missal, a hand-made pinafore, the practice of not eat- ing breakfast, etc. Our group, which was Wisdom, was instruct- ed to meet at the Chapel with our leader. Of course, we thought we would have to kneel on the rock floor for a half-hour or an hour, but our leader told us that Wisdom meant foolishness in the eyes of the world, like holding up for correct principles even though it caused us to be unpopular. Then she quoted the Communion verse taken from the Feast of the Assumption, "Taste and see that the Lord is sweet." Next she un- covered a big bowl of luscious Alberta peaches and gave us each one to eat in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament. We felt foolish all rightl Trojans Make (om00l)ack Defeat (larksville 20 To 6 Subiaco. Upholding their an- cient Subiaco tradition of never two losses in a row, the Trojans hit the comeback trail hard last Friday night on Morgan field at Paris, winning 20 to 6 from' the feared and favored Clarksville Panthers. Subiaco had dropped a game to Benton, 13 to 6, the pre- wous week. Friday's win brought the Trojans average back to .750. It was their 19th triumph in 23 starts. Individually, the Subiaco boys put up as good a scrap as Subiaco has ever displayed, com- pletely mastering the fighting but futile Johnson County team after first quarter. Clarksville muffed a good chance to draw first blood early when the Panthers recovered a Subiaco fumble on the Trojan 22, only to lose the ball on next play by a fumble of their own. L. D. Caillouet, overeager Subiaco back, did the fumbling but also did the retrievinga rare indivi- dual comeback. Subiaco then dis- played as quick a reversal of for- tune as football has ever offered. Norbert Gorrell, hard -running halfback, took a looping 35-yard pass from Hoot Lueken. playing fullback for Subiaco that night, and Gorrell wound up on the Clarksville 18. A moment later Gorrell again carried the mail for Subiaco, going around end for the remaining 18 yards. Lueken's at- tempted line buck for extra point was short. Subiaco was in possession near midfield at the halfway period, second quarter being a scoreless seesaw. The Trojans then struck hard early in third quarter for their second tally. They worked the ball up to the 10 on reverses and passes, Lueken, Savary, Gor- tell, and Wolf being in on the plays, with fine line support from Wirtjes, DeSalvo, Sylvester, Goe- bel and others. From the 10, Hennie Wolf, a dandy young pros- ect, took the sizzling pass of Hoot Lueken to score standing up. Lueken got the extra point by a neat run around right end. This series showed the Trojans capable most scoring plays ori both sides came on passes, of which Clarks- ville completed 3 of 15 for 45 yards, and Subiaco 3 of 8 for 83 yards. Lueken picked up 69 yards on runbacks of kickoffs and punts. Subiaco is seeking a game for Friday to fill a cancelled date, and after that plays Atkins at Atkins, renewing an old rivalry. The Atkins game is on Oct. 22.

He Was given the special task of pushing the garden plow, and oh, my, what blisters he had on his hands next day. We dramatized the Feasts of St. Lawrence, St. Frances and St. Clare. Everyone renewed their Confirmation vows and a visiting couple renewed their marriage vows. We observed the Feast of the Assumption by offering bowls of herbs and vegetables to be bles- sed at the altar and by acting the parts of the five wise and five foolish virgins in two well-timed -processions that met at the chapel. Only one group had their candles lighted• On the Feast of St. Lawrence, the seventy of us had a moon- light and candlelight procession, first to the chapel, then to a large cross placed in an orchard where we grouped into a large mrcle. Several gave extemporaneous a of a smooth offense• They had already demonstrated a good de- fense against repeated and des- perate scoring attempt of the Panthers, who a week earlier had licked a good Van Buren Team and was given a high rating. Play of the Subiaco guards in Friday's game was noticeably good, in con- trast to a week earlier, while the center work of Goebel was out- standing despite his crippled con- dition. Fans believe the Trojans have found themselves. Final tally of Subiaco came early in last quarter. Bornhoft caught a pretty 30-yard pass from Savary, who had taken the ball on a lateral from Lueken, and Bornhoft wound up on the three. From there Lueken stepped over the goal line in another play. Lueken kicked extra point. A ten-yard pass, Weatherton to Boggs, accounted for Clarksville's lone tally in the waning minutes and with many Subiaco subs in action. Clarksvillo clicked on several passes to get to the 10 and prayers. Then we were each giv- clicked again in the air as Boggs en a small paper cross from a went over. Weatherton kicked basket. Each cross contained a extra point for the Panthers. psalm and an appropriate task to Their work on this series showed correspond with the psalm. When we renewed our Con- firmation vows, seven girls rep- resenting the seven gifts of the Holy Ghost, held burning torches before the altar. To impress us with the fact that we were to be- come lay apostles, each was told to "Look up and see that the har- vest is white"; and each was giv- en a small sheaf of wheat with another task attached to it, and labled as one of the gifts of the Holy Ghost.

Subiaco in Friday's game start- ed Bornhoft, Wirtjes, Sylvester, Goebel, Wiederkehr, DeSalvo Oliver, Savary, Caillouet, Gorrell, and Lueken, using Painter, Noble, and Wolf as chief subs. Clarks- x,lle began with Boggs, Carey, Hardygrove, Kemp, Ewing, Black- ard, Bean, Weatherton, Edwards Rachels, and Yarbrough, and made few substitutions.
